Modern living room media setups are normally centered around a television. While larger televisions can reach an 80" diagonal, 40"-60" displays are more common. This can limit the amount of immersion that any media experience can offer, as the display only takes up a small fraction of your vision. The RIT Immersive Living Room system overcomes this boundary by integrating a video projector into the conventional living room setup. The projector extends the display of the television by projecting additional content onto the surrounding wall and furniture, adapting the projected data around your specific living room setup. We will be demonstrating some simple uses of this system, such as a Microsoft Kinect-based game.
